Disorders of sex development (DSDs) are estimated to be prevalent in 0.1-2% of the global population, although these figures are unlikely to adequately represent non-white patients as they are largely based on studies performed in Europe and the USA. Possible causes of DSDs include disruptions to gene expression and regulation-processes that are considered(More)
On Foursquare, one of the currently most popular location-based social networks, users can not only share which places (venues) they visit but also leave short comments (tips) about their previous experiences at specific venues. Tips may provide a valuable feedback for business owners as well as for potential new customers. Sentiment or polarity(More)
In location-based social networks, such as Foursquare, users may post tips with their opinions about visited places. Tips may directly impact the behavior of future visitors, providing valuable feedback to business owners. Sentiment or polarity detection has attracted great attention due to its vast applicability in opinion summarization, ranking or(More)

Purpose: Evaluate the cardiovascular and hematological effects produced by chronic treatment with two dosis of etoricoxib in Wistar normotensive rats. Methods: Thirty rats have been used and divided into one control group and two etoricoxib (10mg/kg and 30mg/kg) treatments groups for 60 days. The mean arterial pressure (MAP) was taken during the whole(More)
In this paper is presented a characterization users’s mobility of the mobile ad hoc networks. In this context, a generalization is made of the markovian mobility models, that are indicated to represent the movement of users in indoors or outdoors. Thus, it is presented a general characterization of the use of Markov processes in the representation of the(More)
In TREC 2016, we focus on tackling the challenges posed by the Dynamic Domain (DD) track. The goal of the TREC DD track is to support research in dynamic, exploratory search within a complex domain. To this end, our participation investigates the suitability of multiple diversification approaches for dynamic information retrieval. In particular , based on(More)
This paper presents a new proposal for the motion characterization of users in wireless environments, through the space-time microscopic analysis of mobility. This analysis has the objective of investigating the movement components and other measures of interest, in both a qualitative and quantitative way, which are utilized to get a better knowledge of the(More)
